Passion for entrepreneurship and learning about its legal aspects
How strongly would I recommend this course?
For those interested in research or entrepreneurship: 8/10. Prof Atrey is Dean R&D and takes this course which is again a big plus
When to take this course?
6th semester. Ideally it can be taken in the 4th semester as well. I opted for it then but since it is a 2nd half semester course, it had to be cancelled then due to the pandemic
